PricewaterhouseCoopers and HOTEL BUSINESS will offer links to their respective websites, lodgingresearch.com and hotelbusiness.com. This is first time either organization has linked with another organization of this type with a site tour now available on hotelbusiness.com. The links will offer subscribers the opportunity to receive both news and data from HOTEL BUSINESS and PricewaterhouseCoopers lodgingresearch.com. Last month, PricewaterhouseCoopers redesigned lodgingresearch.com to use new technology to feature PricewaterhouseCoopers research and to make a small number of the best sources of news and data easily available to clients and subscribers. LodgingResearch.com provides all of PricewaterhouseCoopers research, including: U.S. industry research briefings, lodging industry forecasts, white papers, PricewaterhouseCoopers Hospitality Directions, U.S. and European editions and recent press releases.
HOTEL BUSINESS re-launched hotelbusiness.com in August 2000 to provide the industry with the latest breaking news and exclusive features along with a daily E-mail featuring original content. hotelbusiness.com posts more than 30 stories each and every day.
“We chose to offer the hotelbusiness.com link on our site after conducting a survey of clients and subscribers. These survey results showed that hotelbusiness.com has many highly valued attributes, including quality; original feature stories; breaking news stories; and, ease of use and impressive appearance,” said Bjorn Hanson, Ph.D., global industry leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers Hospitality & Leisure Practice.
“We are thrilled to establish a link with PricewaterhouseCoopers lodgingresearch.com,” said Stacy Silver, Group Publisher of hotelbusiness.com. “More than ever before, information is the currency for sound decision-making, and PwC offers users the best research on the lodging industry by applying statistics and econometrics to numerous topics. The combination of these two sites will allow users to click back and forth between the two most highly regarded and well-respected sites in the industry.”
